just as important as a member of a specialty unit. there are probably people sitting in this room who said i got graffiti because nobody else wanted and it that is hard. there are officers like me and officers hired into my unit that love of job and see the value in it, see the value to the community. so you have got to have that interest or else, again, you are going to have not a successful officer. okay, so now you have found the officer and got him figured out and i talk a lot about officers, but the same applies to civilians and anybody in this audience, because my concept is anybody can be a graffiti expert. and a lot of that comes down to training. you know, where do you find this training? well, for us as police officers, we get a lot of it through approved current training classes and things certified by the state, post-classes and that is fairly consistent within a lot of states that have a group that authorizes what kind of training an officer gets. articles and books is fairly self-explanator y and the internet. if you are curious about anything having to do with gra

not be so in the united states military? >> no, i cannot think of any reason. and i have heard the naysayers. i no there are many out there that believe this cannot be done without compromising those standards . having served almost 38 years in an institution where i have lived and scene change throughout my career, and i can assure you, being one of the very first female officers had the opportunity to attend airborne school, and you can imagine the looks on the instructors. it was not a popular decision. but, can assure you that having that opportunity to go to airborne school. people say why you want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane? well, it was exciting. it sounded challenging. so i had the opportunity to do that, but by having that opportunity that later opened the door for me to serve in the esteemed 802nd airborne division and command there. i had the opportunity to go to jet master's cool. that is a very prestigious and demanding school. primarily male dominated. i was the only female in the class surrounded by special forces folks. you know, they didn't change the standards
, basically. and so the thing that's hard to get across to people in the united states or these policymakers is that coca is not cocaine. all right? it's -- and indigenous peoples of this hemisphere should not be punished because some people refine it into can cocaine and abuse it. coca, there's great dignity and value to this lease, and there's an ancient tradition that doesn't harm people, and the arrogance by which the united states foreign policy tries to dictate terms to places like bolivia, less than 1% of excess cocaine in bolivia with ends up in the united states. and yet the heavyhanded nature of u.s. policy, you would think this was some kind of flood coming from bolivia the way we dictate terms to that country. and so, now, imagine if the united nations and the audience of the u.n. convention were to treat coffee the way, with the contempt they treat coca, right? what would happen if they -- and they've told bolivians and peruvians you have to stop chewing coca which they've been doing for centuries, if not thousands of years. imagine if they did that to the united states, you kno
authorities in the united states and japan are keeping in closer contact these days. most of their discussions involve the 787 dreamliner. the boeing-made plane has been grounded, following a series of problems. the biggest involves the jet's batteries. nhk world brings us up to speed on the investigation. >> reporter: investigators with the u.s. national transportation safety board have spent hours picking through the remains of a japan airlines 787 battery, hoping to find out why it caught fire earlier this month, while the plane was on the tarmac in boston. >> we do not expect to see fire events on board aircrafts. this is a very serious air safety concern. >> reporter: the lithium ion batteries play a key role in improving the 787's fuel efficiency. dreamliners have two sets of them. one is under the cockpit and provides backup energy in an emergency. the other is under the passenger cabin. it starts the jet's engines. the eight-cell batteries weigh half as much as conventional motors but provide the same amount of power. the problem is, they are more susceptible to catching fire when they
is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's leadership, secretary lahood leadership, the vision of the leaders on the stage we are here to commit $942 million to fulfill that promise. [applause] >> with the signing of this grant agreement we are taking $942 million paid by california taxpayers and to create jobs now when we need them. we're also using those dollars to improve the quality of life, and as jackie spear pointed out plan for the future and economic prosperity of this whole area. when this subway extension opens as senator feinstein pointed out there will be 44,000 people using this light rail line. what she didn't point out that will make it the second or third busiest light rail in the united states. this is an environment that needs to be made
the second of two seismic shifts in the united states military in just over two years. the first was december of 2010 when president obama signed the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" law and ending a policy that mandated shame and secrecy as requirements for service. the second happened on thursday when defense secretary leon panetta joined the joint chiefs of staff chairman martin dempsey and made this announcement. >> we must open up service opportunities for women as fully as possible. and therefore today, general dempsey and i are pleased to announce that we are eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion rule for women. and we are moving forward with a plan to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service. >> just like that, 200,000 military combat jobs that were once off limits for women are potentially open to any woman who meets the qualifications. more importantly, the official policy for women in the u.s. military has now caught up with what has long been the reality for women in the u.s. military. women already make up 15% of the overall force and 17% of the of
. we know from private organizations that infrastructure in the united states needs repair. we know from examples in other countries that if you have proper infrastructure it over time attracts business and we can shed this whole nonsense about taking on debt for our grandchildren if we create a place where it's fascinating and profitable to do business. >> and it's economic security for your grandchildren. i guess this becomes a message that has to change here where instead of talking about spending and federal government getting bigger and more involved in the economy and your life we have to be talking about investing and using the government the way it should be to invest and put us in the right position so we can compete with the rest of the world that by the world is going crazy doing infrastructure spending using cash in many cases to do it, something we don't have. >> just changing the words won't fix it. obama has also said investing as a synonym for spending. investing has to be investing. >> if we can't get behind a no-brainer like this, a public/private infrastructure ba

. the first fracks were done in the united states in the gas industry, i believe in missouri in 1947, if i remember correctly. and fracking, by the way, has been used in the gas industry on a massive scale ever since. so suddenly we've become aware of fracking, but in actual fact it's been going on beneath our eyes, beneath our notice all along. the people who brought it back, however, were the canadians who brought it to russia in 1988, then bigtime after the soviet union fell apart. and fracking started to be applied on a massive scale starting in about 1998. now, the point of the story is even though it was new to the russians practically speaking in 1998, by 2000, 2001, it had become a russian business, and there were russian companies and russian crews who were doing fracking at the, you know, on a massive scale. so this gives you one measure of lag, and the lag quickly overcome. at the opposite extreme, however, are techniques that are completely new to the russians and that require a whole different order of capability, because they are so much more difficult. and the prime example
